About

Hey there, thanks for dropping by!

I’m Siddharth, a graduate student at Cornell (NYC). As a kid, I started out playing with audio circuits, built a few guitar pedals, and broke open old electronics to repurpose components from them. Soon enough, I did my bachelors in electronics to understand this field beyond the DIY circles.

This phase of my life is characterized by my love for open-source electronics. Over the past few years, I’ve worked on several embedded systems projects ranging from an FDM 3D printer to a 6-DOF robotic arm.  Somewhere along the way, the idea of open-source and democratizing technology started to grow on me.

Prior to grad school, I built robots at Orangewood Labs (YC-18), followed by designing electronics for cutting-edge agricultural robots at Beagle Technology

Here I am in 2024, all set to re-enter the professional world, bubbling with new ideas and an evolved skillset. I’ll graduate from Cornell this summer(2024) and would be super happy to connect with industry veterans and potential employers!
